According to the Eagles, Reid absence was due to a "personal issue".
In a press conference following the walkthrough, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman announced that Reid's son, Garrett Reid, had been found dead in his room at Lehigh University.
"He's been strong for us, we're going to be strong for him right now," Roseman said before turning the press conference over to Lehigh University's Chief of Police, who said there was no evidence of foul play.
An investigation by the coroner's office is underway.
McLane noted this morning that the last time Reid was believed to have missed a practice was when he was attending a court date for Garrett, who had been arrested on drug and weapons charges.
We extend our deepest condolences to the Reid family and all members of the Philadelphia Eagles organization.
